The Information Cube has been a waystation of computer history, and it needs a little love. Let's add some safety/space.
Hi, Jason Scott. I run textfiles.com and work on documentaries and archiving for the Internet Archive. I have a shipping container in the back of the property which i call the Information Cube and which works as a waystation for otherwise-doomed historical materials for a technology nature. A library, if you will.
A number of people have expressed concern about the quality of storage or that this item could use a little more love, so here we are. Fund this short 7-day project and I will produce a series of narrative clips describing items in the collection (and dedicating each one to a specific person who contributed) and then use this money to buy additional racks, boxes and temperature monitoring for the cube. If we go over, I'll hire a kid to help me go through it.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
